Dr. Karen Gayle: You never seem to have a dull moment.
Eddie Drake: Don't give me that, Dr. Gayle. It can get plenty dull between cases. This one had a couple of interesting angles - both of them good-looking. One was a dancer - what a dancer!
Dr. Karen Gayle: What do you say we start at the beginning?
Eddie Drake: Well, it all started early yesterday afternoon and sopped late last night with a whole collection of more or less inanimate people cluttering up my office. It had been a dull morning. I was wondering whether I should take Dave for a ride...
Dr. Karen Gayle: Dave? Who's Dave?
Eddie Drake: That's my new car.
Dr. Karen Gayle: I didn't know you could afford one.
Eddie Drake: It was quite a joint all right, and she was sleek as a Town and Country with its top down, besides which the look she threw at me from across the room with those narrow greenish eyes made me glad I'd shaved and put on my other clean shirt.
